2 years ago I got new tires on my 97 Formula - BF Goodrich Comp 2 summer tires in stock size 245/50-ZR16

I also had an alignment when getting the new tires, settings are pretty close to stock:
Camber - L 0.5 R 0.5
Castor - L 5.2 R 5.0
Total toe was reset to an even 0

Steering wheel is perfectly straight and the car does not pull or wander, pretty stable at highway speed. I've put about 2500 miles on the tires so far, thought by now the steering would "tighten up" a bit. I remember when the car was new the steering was quite "heavy", just seems lately it feels kinda light.

Could it be the positive camber causing this (the alignment specs call for a range between .9 and -.1)?

Or is it cause the tires are still a bit "fresh" and I'd have to let them wear in some more?

Thanks!

EDIT - Tires were all set to 30 PSI. I'm gonna try again raising them to 33 PSI to see if there is an improvement.

Have you checked the power steering pump pressure. Maybe it's too high. Grasping at straws here.
